Report: State can boost opportunity, combat inequality by expanding taxes

A historically large share of the nation’s wealth is concentrated in the hands of a few, reducing opportunities for millions of Americans and reinforcing barriers that make it harder for people of color to make gains.

These inequities are made worse by most state tax systems – including New Mexico’s. By designing better tax policy, state lawmakers can help spread opportunity more widely and build more broadly shared prosperity.

Among the solutions on state policymakers’ lists should be expanding the taxation of assets of the very wealthy, since loopholes and other special benefits currently shield much...

Dashing through the snow…Or not. Here in New Mexico, the idea of a “White Christmas” is hit or miss — of course, snow does happen. Regardless of holiday blankets of white, though, snow doesn’t necessarily mean you’re having a good time.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

You’re not perfect and the world is going to disappoint you. But that doesn’t have to be a bad thing. You also don’t have to lower your standards. You can maintain a high standard of excellence for yourself and still exert the least amount effort...
